DIMACS Workshop on Management and Processing of Data Streams
(In conjunction with ACM SIGMOD/PODS and FCRC 2003)
Sunday, June 8, 2003
Presented under the auspices of the
Special Focus on Next Generation Networks Technologies and Applications and the
Special Focus on Data Analysis and Mining.
San Diego, California, USA
Measuring and monitoring complex, dynamic phenomena -- atmospheric
conditions, stellar patterns, movement of financial markets, traffic
evolution in telephone and internet communication infrastructures,
usage of world wide web, email and newsgroups -- produces stream data,
i.e., data that arrives as a series of "observations", often very
rapidly. These observations generally have intricate relationships
between them, are often grouped in multiple ways into logical events,
and are naturally collected via distributed platforms.
Databases and applications are increasingly required to manipulate
stream data. This presents many challenges which are just beginning
to be addressed.
FCRC'03 provides a valuable opportunity to engage this large and
diverse community of interest in drawing up the specification of data
stream management systems, understanding their power and limitations,
as well as motivating the applications that will drive the development
of data stream systems. This workshop will provide a forum to discuss
the progress on all aspects of managing stream data. The intended
audience includes researchers, practitioners and graduate students
interested in data stream management from the database (SIGMOD/PODS)
community, as well as from other member FCRC conferences.
- Fundamental algorithmic models and results for data streams are
being studied in the theoretical computer science community.
- Data stream management systems are being designed and prototyped
in the database community.
- IP traffic analysis is a powerful application domain for data streams,
and is being addressed in the networking community.
- Programming language and software support needed for managing data
streams is being determined in the systems community.
- Custom and off-the-shelf hardware support is being developed for
data streams in the networking and graphics communities.
- The workshop will comprise a day of talks, including both invited
and contributed talks. The invited speakers will be primarily
associated with the various conferences that are part of FCRC'03.
There will be a total of 4 invited talks and 12-16 short
contributed talks. An informal proceedings will be distributed
at the workshop.
- SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
- We solicit submissions for contributed talks from different disciplines
of Computer Science working on the problems of managing and processing
data streams. The submissions should be at most 2 pages long, and could
present either novel results, open problems and challenges, or a survey
of data stream work in a particular domain or application.
- Papers should be submitted in ASCII, PDF or PostScript electronically
to both the workshop chairs.
- Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their work at the
workshop. Others who want to participate in the workshop should send
email indicating interest to the workshop chairs, by April 30, 2003.
Registration information will be made available later.

Important Reimbursement Information
Attendees who have been offered support from DIMACS should keep two rules
in mind. Reimbursement for air travel can only be made for
travel on US Flag Carriers, REGARDLESS OF COST. (For example, travel on airlines such as
United, Continental, USAir, and others that are United States
based are allowable. Travel on airlines such as Lufthansa, SAS, Air Canada
and other airlines based outside the US cannot be reimbursed by DIMACS.)
The second rule to keep in mind is to get original receipts for
all reimbursable expenses.
